About this volunteering opportunity

Volunteer role title: Youth Club Volunteer
Location: Various Locations in Eastbourne

Are you an enthusiastic and creative person who is up for a challenge and enjoys working with young people? If so then we would love to hear from you!

An exciting opportunity has arisen to support the running of our youth clubs at YMCA YAC Eastbourne. YMCA DownsLink is one of the largest providers of youth services in the South East, and we are currently expanding our range of services in Eastbourne. As a volunteer you will be at the heart of this growth.

All of our youth clubs provide a range of games, discussions, sports, crafts, baking and conservation activities, all tailored to young people aged 11-19 years old. This is a challenging but rewarding role, it is therefore important that you are reliable and approachable. We are looking for people who have an interest in youth work and have a commitment to learning. We are especially interested in hearing from volunteers with an interest in running our music group, arts activities and LGBTQ group.
